GLSA-201710-15 : GnuTLS: Denial of Service
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 103850
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201710-15 (GnuTLS: Denial of Service)
A NULL pointer dereference while decoding a status response TLS extension with valid contents was discovered in GnuTLS.
A remote attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll GnuTLS users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-libs/gnutls-3.5.13' Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
